"Anne's Numbers", "Anne's Colors" - bookwraps to enjoy

Today's books are based on the beloved character, Anne (Anne spelled with an "e"), from the series "Anne of Green Gables."  They are both beautiful books that I know you will love and appreciate.

About these wonderful books

These sturdy board books were created as a celebration for "Anne of Green Gable" fans.  They depict iconic scenarios from the mind and heart of L. M. Montgomery the talented author of the "Anne of Green Gable" book series.   

 In "Anne's Colors" there are familiar scenes, to those who have read the original classics, highlighting the first time Anne and her best friend Diana meet, catching Gilbert (Anne's classmate) yanking on her pigtail at school, her over-the-moon reaction to a new puff-sleeve dress that she always dreamed of having and we witness when Anne and Diana toast several glasses of raspberry cordial unaware of that there would be consequences to their indulgence.  

In "Anne's Numbers" the author invites you to stroll along with Anne as she enjoys a lovely nature walk counting trees, flowers, clouds and even friends.  The path that Anne walks along is based on the route she takes to school each day.  

The most beautiful and special part of both books?  The illustrations are beautiful crafted.  They are created from fabric and are hand-embroidered by the author... a true labor of love for her readers to enjoy.  The text is simple and the illustrations interactive tactile.  These books are a perfect precursor to introducing the classic "Anne of Green Gables" series later on.  I highly recommend them.
